America has fallen (no pun intended) in love with actress Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games, X-Men, Monk, and Saturday Night Live.)   They loved her at last years Oscars even more after she fell walking up to accept her Best Actress award.  This year she had another mishap. While getting out of her limo, J-Law tripped over an orange traffic cone that was set up on the red carpet.  She might have been tripping in her designer shoes,but her feet still looked great!

Lawrence wasn’t the only celebrity showing off smooth, nice looking feet.  Open toed shoes were the trend on the red carpet, with popular designs by Brian Atwood, Jimmy Choo, and Ferragamo.  Seeing so many new styles was a great reminder that sandal season is right around the corner, and now is the time to start taking care of those corns and calluses before the warm weather.

Corns and Calluses

A corn(or callus) is a rough, thickened area of skin on your feet that formed because of irritation.  Winter boots and other closed toe shoes often have areas that rub or put pressure on your feet, and can cause these corns or calluses to develop.  These spots can continue to thicken and may become painful.

What causes Corns and Calluses to form?

  • Rubbing or pressure from shoes
  • Wearing high heels (balls of the feet)
  • Hammertoes
  • Bunions

Care for Corns and Calluses

It is always a good idea to find out why you have developed corns or calluses in the first place.  Dr. Schlamat Hollowbrook Foot Specialists is an expert in healthcare for the feet, and can determine whether your corns and calluses are forming due to improper shoes or because of the way your foot is built.  He can also assist you with ways to decrease the rubbing and pressure that is causing your skin to thicken.  If your corns and calluses are large or painful, he can minimize your discomfort by debriding them during your visit.

Don’t try to take care of corns and calluses by yourself at home.  That could lead to an infection and you would be in worse pain then when you started.

It is best to see a podiatrist if you have a problem with corns or calluses, especially if you have diabetes or circulation problems.  We are here to help.  Feel free to schedule an appointment online or by calling our Wappingers Falls office at (845) 298 – 9074.
